I am using the class report right now, and would like to use \subsection as a running counter throughout the entire chapter, without reseting it in a new \section.

Tried to research this myself, but since google is flooded with how to reset counter, I couldn't find what I was searching for.

    \usepackage{chngcntr} and \counterwithout{subsection}{section}... and this perhaps one of the most asked questions here on TeX.SE ;-) – user31729 Apr 19 '17 at 9:08
  • This doesn't help at all, actually it counteracts what I want I need the section and the chapter counter before, but I only want to suppress the reset of the subsection counter. This solutions deletes said counter. – Patrick Abraham Apr 19 '17 at 10:56

    Then use \counterwithout*{subsection}{section} ;-) Reading the manual can help ;-) – user31729 Apr 19 '17 at 10:59
  • Well stating this is a duplicate and then stating that reading the manual to actually understand both problems are interlinked did help to. What means I would have to read the manual of a package maybe not helping at all, to understand it would help. Instead of asking a community that wants to help and wants to share knowledge. Said behaviour counteracts the share of knowledge and leads to elitist behaviour. Like stating that reading the manual helps. – Patrick Abraham Apr 19 '17 at 11:05
  • Where in your initial post was the line that you want to keep the numbering displayed as is? Even if you edit and 'change' the question afterwards, it is still a duplicate of some other question, I am pretty sure. The suggestion to read the manual is also a pretty natural thing to do, in my opinion the manual would be the first thing to check after some suggestion has been done. – user31729 Apr 19 '17 at 11:19
